Die Die Must Succeed - Doolittle Raid on Japan

Good example of a determined effort to bomb Japan in retaliation for Pearl Harbor carnage. No navy carrier-based bomber is able to do it & no carrier battle group can survive for long near Japan shortly after Pearl Harbor been raided. Hence the ridiculous idea of launching army medium B-25 Mitchell bombers from a carrier! Able to takeoff but unable to land so have to land in China/Russia.

A good example of when one is determined to do something he will find the way & if can't find the way will make the way!

The majority of public is introduced to the raid from Pearl Harbor movie in 2001. Leading officer Jimmy Doolittle leads by example by being the first(shortest runway) to take off.
